About this product
- DescriptionBeginning by drawing parallels between the author's experiences at the British Embassy in Kabul in 2010-2013 and her grandfather's experiences of the same just after Indian Independence in 1948-50, this book takes a thematic approach to analyse the role of Britain in Afghanistan since the conclusion of the Second World War. This examination uncovers a little-kwn story about how Britain's imperial withdrawal from Afghanistan in the late 1940s helped fuel the early Cold War, and why it has proved so difficult to 'rebuild' Afghanistan recently. At the heart of the book are the people and buildings of the former British Embassy, once a potent symbol of imperial might and w occupied by Pakistan to project its own regional ascendancy in the next chapter of Afghanistan's troubled story.
- Author BiographySusan Loughhead is a civil servant in the Department for International Development. From 2010 to 2013 she was seconded to NATO's headquarters in Afghanistan, and then led the department's governance reform work in the British Embassy.
